1940 Census Form
The 1940 Census Form (Population Schedule) is similar in layout to those used for prior United States census. This 1940 census form incorporates slight variations and change in questions, but anyone who had used a 1930 census will quickly adapt to the 1940 census form. An exciting first-time addition for 1940 — researchers will know by a special marking in column #7 which member of the household provided answers for questions posed by the enumerator.
